CONDITIONAL ZONING RESTRICTIONS The Versailles Road corridor has been identified as one of Lexington s historic turnpikes and is a connection point for one of the gateways into the Bluegrass Region by the Rural Land Management Plan (RLMP), an adopted element of the 2018 Comprehensive Plan. As a gateway and historic turnpike, Versailles Road provides a glimpse of the rural area as it was in the past. One of the primary goals of the RLMP is the preservation of the existing character of the rural roads, which encompasses such physical features as fencing, walls, trees, creeks and streams, shrubs, houses and barns. Based upon the goals and recommendations of the RLMP, and in order to protect the unique character of the corridor, conditional zoning restrictions are recommended for the subject property.

No additional detail provided

Tagged Passions:rural, strategic, historic, zoning, trees, preservation, property, corridor, and gateway

To protect the historic turnpike there shall be a 100-foot buffer area from the right-of-way of Versailles Road. Within the buffer area there shall be no principal or accessory structures. Additionally a Tree Preservation Area (TPA) shall be estab- lished within the buffer area. Only damaged or diseased trees, or those trees necessary for a public or private street may be removed, but shall be replaced in equal number to preserve the existing tree canopy and buffer. Replacement trees may be selected from Group A or B of the Plant List as referenced by Article 18 of the Zoning Ordinance.

The proposed rezoning meets the criteria for Site Design, Building Form and Location as the site creates a resi- dential development that is pedestrian-friendly, while also providing access to focal points and public green space. Additionally, the proposed rezoning seeks to utilize a vacant parcel of land while also minimizing the impacts on the surrounding environment and communities. Finally, the proposed development retains the historic structure and adaptively reuses it as a clubhouse for the community. The proposed rezoning meets the criteria for Transportation and Pedestrian Connectivity providing safe facilities for the potential residents of the site. Should LexTran determine a stop at this location, the applicant has indicated a willingness to work to achieve proper facilities. The proposed rezoning meets the criteria for Greenspace and Environmental Health as it works with the current landscape, limits the impacts on the surrounding environment, maintains the current tree lines and canopy, and provides delineated access to the nearby public park. Under the provisions of Article 6-7 of the Zoning Ordinance. the following use and buffering restrictions are recom- mended via conditional zoning: a. There shall be a 100-foot buffer area (building setback) from the right-of-way of Versailles Road. The following shall apply within the buffer area: 1.

ZOTA 2019-1: AMENDMENT TO ARTICLE 18 AND ARTICLE 26, AND THE PLANTING MANUAL TO REFLECT CREDIT

GIVEN FOR COLUMNAR VARIETY TREES a petition for a Zoning Ordinance text amendment to update Articles 18 and 26 of the LFUCG Zoning Ordinance and Planting Manual to designate all columnar tree varieties as small trees and reduce the canopy credit to 100 square feet. Additionally, all references to oversight of tree canopy requirements in the Planting Manual will be updated from the Division of Building Inspection to the Division of Environmental Services. INITIATED BY: URBAN COUNTY PLANNING COMMISSION PROPOSED TEXT: Copies are available from the staff. The Zoning Committee Recommended: Approval.

Tagged Passions:planning, ordinance, boards and commissions, zoning, services, environment, plant, and trees

The Staff Recommends: Approval, for the following reasons: 1. The proposed text amendments will satisfy the intent of Article 26 by properly counterbalancing the effects of the urban

setting by applying the appropriate tree canopy coverage for the columnar tree varieties. The amendments will establish the maximum canopy credit of 100 square feet for any columnar variety tree, regardless of overall height.
Tagged Passions:trees

2.
The proposed text amendments support Imagine Lexington, the 2018 Comprehensive Plan because the modification of the tree canopy coverage for columnar tree varieties seeks to apply environmentally sustainable practices to protect, conserve and restore landscapes and natural resources (Theme B, Goal 3).

Tagged Passions:strategic, trees, and buildings and grounds

3.
The proposed text amendments will implement the Urban Forestry Management Plan, as referenced by Theme B: Protecting the Environment, Restoration Policy 1, which calls for the protection and recovery of Lexington s urban forest by strategically planting new trees and creating walkable streetscapes. The amendment also supports the specific goals of ensuring tree-related ordinances and land subdivision regulations support the growth of a sustainable urban forest (Goal 4.2), and ensuring ordinances and regulations are consistent with each other, and other applicable LFUCG planning documents and manuals (Goal 4.3).

To continue building upon the public engagement initiated by Long Range Planning (LRP) Staff during the development of Imagine Lexington, LRP Staff teamed up with Planning Services to organize a series of workshops for both citizens and appli- cants that focus on The Placebuilder, a component of Imagine Lexington. Titled, Continuing Education on The Placebuilder, these workshops are scheduled to take place throughout the months of March July ( beyond as needed). In the month of April, Planning Staff led an applicant workshop on April 29th. This workshop featured guidance relating to zone change justifica- tions and how The Placebuilder fits into the zone change process, similarly to the work session with Planning Commission members on February 21st. Staff also gave a presentation at a neighborhood meeting hosted in Council District 10 at the Beaumont Library on April 15th, which featured general information about The Placebuilder and Imagine Lexington.

Senior Services Commission Staff has participated in ongoing meetings with the Senior Services Commission (SSC) to continue the discussion about Acces- sory Dwelling Units (ADUs). The SSC has been leading the conversation around ADUs as a potentially more desirable and cost-effective option to house the growing senior population in Lexington. In 2018, the SSC was awarded a grant to develop a guidebook for ADUs for Lexington residents, particularly for those who are interested in aging in place. Long Range Planning Staff Chris Woodall, Chris Taylor, Valerie Friedmann, and Grace Coy, in addition to Craig Bencz, assisted the SSC with the development of an ADU manual, titled, Homeowner s Guide to Accessory Dwelling Units. A draft was completed on January 31, 2019, and is currently posted online for public review. The draft of this manual was also presented to the Planning Commis- sion during the March 21st work session.

Public input meetings relating to the topic of ADUs and the ADU manual were scheduled throughout the months of April and May. These meetings were hosted at the Lexington Senior Center by the Senior Services Commission. Planning Staff assisted with the presentation and helped facilitate the public input activity organized for the audience. For meetings during the month of April (April 10th April 23rd), events were well attended and featured a great variety of perspectives from the public. The Senior Services Commission will be processing the public input received during these meetings and incorporating those comments as they move forward. Staff Study Group Beginning the month of February, some of the relatively new additions to Planning Staff have been participating in a study group that meets every other week to discuss different planning topics. The group was formed in order to develop and enhance the participants understanding of different planning processes, the Zoning Ordinance Subdivision Regulations, and existing and up-and-coming studies/plans. Additionally, they are able to hear different perspectives from other Staff members working in different sections. Agenda Page 6 The staff will report at the meeting.

Permitting Since January 1, 2012 a Zoning Compliance Permit (ZCP) has been required before a building or premises can be occupied for a specific use or a change in use, with some exceptions for agricultural uses and single family or two-family residences. In April, seven ZCP s were issued, including one for an Airbnb rental operation. The Zoning Compliance office is receiving a steady stream of inquiries from citizens about Airbnb s, from both concerned parties as well as those interested in pursuing that type of rental activity in their homes.

Technical assistance was provided to the Division of Building Inspection (at weekly Review Board meetings) in review of 11 applications for new commercial or multi-family building construction, and 17 applications for remodel activity, fit-ups or change in use requests. Permitting staff also devoted much time to issuing official zoning certification letters (7 for the month), respond- ing to numerous citizen inquiries about a diversity of zoning issues, and providing assistance to citizens with getting through the Accela online application process.
